“Our first night in Crete”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2005


I stayed at Ontas for one night, because Chania is not far from the airport and so it was easy to get there the first night of our Cretan tour.
I have to say that the Ontas is really nice and in a real "greek style", people are very kind and answered all the (many) questions I sent them by e-mail to plan my holiday.
Once in the hotel we met Vassili, a very kind man prompt to give you information on how to live the city at best!

Nicely renovated hotel building is located at east side of old harbour. Room was well furnished, clean and air conditioned, hotel-keeper friendly and helpful. Chania is generally nice place to stay, I really enjoyed it.

My wife and I stayed in Ontas for four nights in August 2004 and everything was wonderful.

I didn't expect such a friendly welcome treating us "tsikoudia" (a very hot local drink).

It is a nice building made by stone and wood which redecorated from an old venetian building.
The room was spacious,clean and nicely decorated and we were lucky because we had a balcony with nice view of all the neighborhood. This was very nice because this hotel is located in the so called "old town" near all traditional buildings. Also the sea, the old venetian harbour and the centre of town are very near.

The staff was very friendly and helpful providing us with many information (and a travel guide free!) about sights and nice beaches (like Balos, you should go there).

I think I would (and propably I will) go there again.
